CAPTURE SNAPSHOT DATA

The snapshot feature is used to control when and what data will be recorded.
This helps to locate electronic engine control system problems by focusing on
when the symptom occurs. Snapshot setup controls recording of data by
allowing the user to specify a set of conditions that will start recording.
Snapshot can also record data before the trigger event.
Select SnapShot and then Setup on the menu bar.

HINT: Toolbar shortcut is by clicking on

To open an existing snapshot setup from a file, select File, Open, and then
select the trg as the files of type.

HINT: Toolbar shortcut is by clicking on

The SNAP SHOT SETUP dialog box will appear.

MASTERDIAGNOSTICS

III.7.1

Here are the steps for using Snapshot:


1)

Select a trigger to begin snapshot recording: using automatic trigger.


MD determines when to begin data recording by the trigger setup.
MD allows two automatic triggers, which can be used together or
separately.
a)

Engine Parameter Trigger

First, select an Engine Trigger PID for the trigger by first clicking on
the down arrow to bring up the drop down list box and then click on
the desired PID.

Second, change the trigger conditions by clicking on

For numeric PIDs, select the desired unit for the trigger value, change
the Trigger Value, and select the desired Trigger Edge.

III.7.2

MASTERDIAGNOSTICS

2)

An example: if "Fuel Rate" is selected as the trigger parameter, "6.0"


L/hr is set as the trigger value, and "rising" edge is selected, MD will
begin recording the data when fuel rate rises above 6.0 L/hr.

For bitmap PIDs, select the desired status when the trigger event is to
occur by changing the Trigger Value.

b)

Trouble Code Trigger

Change the trouble code count to a non-zero value. This trigger


mechanism is activated when this value is set to a number greater
than zero. MD will begin recording data when the number of active
trouble codes has reached above this value.
Set the Sample Rate.

This sets the rate as to how often to record data. Setup a shorter time
if desired amount of data to collect is small. Setup a longer time if
the desired amount of data to collect is large.
MASTERDIAGNOSTICS

III.7.3

3)

Set the Pre Trigger Time to record.

Setting this option allows data to be recorded just before the trigger
event.
4)

Set the Post Trigger Time to record.

This sets the amount of data to record after the occurrence of the
trigger event. Only a total of 2000 time frames may be recorded
at one time. MD will warn you if this is exceeded. Reduce the Post
Trigger time or the Pre Trigger time when this error message is
displayed.

III.7.4

MASTERDIAGNOSTICS

5)

Click on
to select the engine parameters to record.
The SELECT PARAMETERS TO RECORD dialog box will appear. The
list on the left contains all the available engine parameters for

1.

If you have lost the sessions that were provided by the install disks and
you do not have the install disks any more, please use the Windows copy
function to retrieve the lost file. The back up copy of the session files is
located in the Factory folder.

2.

If the communication link has failed, please follow the steps outlined
below.
Note: The following steps are recommended only for PC to Navistar
Truck Interface cable (ZTSE4444), Navistar EZ-Tech Interface
cable (ZTSE4444A), or International EZ-Tech Interface cable
(ZTSE4444B).
1)

The interface cable must be connected prior to executing the


MasterDiagnostics software. Exit the software, connect the cable,
then run the software again. Make certain that the correct
communication port is selected in the software. Please go to step 2 if
still unable to communicate on the ATA data link.

2)

Disconnect and reconnect the interface cable from the trucks


diagnostic connector (Deutsch connector). Make sure the interface
cable is secure on both the trucks diagnostic connector and the PC
communication (COM) port. Attempt to run the software again.
Please go to step 3 if still unable to communicate on the ATA data
link.

3)

If the Power ON/OFF indicator is not lit, the truck battery may be
low or the truck wiring harness may be faulty. For 6 pin Deutsch
connector, check voltage between pin C (VBAT) and pin E (GND)
on the trucks diagnostic connector. For 9-pin Deutsch connector,
check voltage between pin B (VBAT) and pin A (GND) on the
trucks diagnostic connector. If the voltage is 9V DC or greater,
please replace the interface cable.
If the Power ON/OFF indicator is lit, then go to step 4 if ATA
(for Navistar EZ-Tech Interface cable or International EZ-Tech
cable) or RXD (for PC to Navistar Truck Interface cable) indicator
is flashing red; if neither indicators on the interface cable are
flashing, then go to step 5.

4)

Try connecting to another PC communication port and/or use another


serial cable. Change the settings in the software to open the new
selected communication port. Replace the interface cable if still
unable to communicate on the ATA data link.

5)

Check if the key switch is turned on. Replace the interface cable if
key switch was turned on.

The programmable parameters are grouped according to control system


features. Please refer to other engine service manuals for more details.
AMS: VGT Mode
AMS: EGR Mode
AIR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
This group of parameters indicates the air management control on the
engine: Variable Nozzle Turbine Turbo and Exhaust Gas
Recirculation.
AUD: Calibration Download Date
AUD: Calibration Tool ID
AUD: Last Service Tool ID 1
AUD: Last Service Tool ID 2
AUD: Strategy Download Date
AUD: Strategy Tool ID
AUDIT (EECM software)
This group of parameters allows the factory and engine engineering
to trace the origin and the date of programming changes through out
the life of the engine electronics.
CC: Cruise Control High VS Limit
CC: Cruise Control Low RPM Limit
CC: Cruise Control Low VS Limit
CC: Cruise Control Mode
CC: Cruise Control VS Ramp Rate
CRUISE CONTROL
This group of parameters customizes the cruise control feature.
The purpose of the cruise control feature is to provide electroniccontrolled vehicle speed regulation when the vehicle is under
highway driving conditions. This feature also has the "bump up" and
"bump down" functions. Wherein, the operator may "bump up" the
vehicle speed in 1.0 mph increments when the Resume/Accel button
is momentarily pressed. The operator may "bump down" the vehicle
speed in 1.0 mph decrements when the Set/Coast button is
momentarily pressed.
Cold Ambient Protection Mode
This parameter customizes the cold ambient protection feature. Cold
ambient protection allows the engine to idle at an elevated RPM
when the coolant temperature falls below a certain point and the
ambient temperature is cold. This allows the engine to warm up to
the normal operating temperature.

MASTERDIAGNOSTICS

Coolant Surge Tank Type


This parameter determines the type (plastic or metallic) of coolant
tank installed in the vehicle.
CDPF: Fuel Interval
CDPF: Hour Interval
CDPF: Distance Interval
CDPF: Starting Fuel Reading
CDPF: Starting Hour Reading
CDPF: Starting Odometer Reading
CDPF: Service Reset
CYTALYTIC DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTER
This group of parameters indicates the service interval for the on
board Catalytic Diesel Particulate Filter system.
CTC: Begin Derate Temperature
CTC: Coolant Temp Compensation Mode
CTC: Derate Factor
CTC: Modify Derate Temperature
COOLANT TEMPERATURE COMPENSATION
This group of parameters customizes the coolant temperature
compensation. The purpose of Coolant Temperature Compensation
is to reduce the amount of fuel delivered to the engine when the
engine is running near its maximum torque fuel delivery and coolant
temperature is above a programmed value. This fuel reduction has
two effects: First, the heat generated by the engine is reduced
thereby reducing the burden on the engine cooling system. Second,
the vehicle speed will decrease. In order to maintain the vehicle
speed the operator is encouraged to downshift, which will result in
increased efficiency of the engine cooling system.
ECI: Engine Crank Inhibit Mode
ECI: Engine Crank Inhibit Run Mode Time
ENGINE CRANK INHIBIT
This group of parameters customizes the crank inhibit feature.
The purpose of Engine Crank Inhibit is to prevent the operator from
cranking the engine while the engine is running or the driveline is
engaged. A programmable time (1-5 seconds) allows the on-board
electronics from inhibit cranking for a short duration until engine
speed reaches idle speed.

IV.2.2

MASTERDIAGNOSTICS

EFC: Air Conditioner


EFC: Engine Fan Mode
EFC: Fan Off Temperature
EFC: Fan On Temperature
ENGINE FAN CONTROL
This group of parameters customizes the engine fan control feature.
The purpose of Engine Fan Control is to provide the proper logic to
determine when the Fan should be turned on or off by energizing/deenergizing the fan drive solenoid. The purpose of engine fan is to
allow a higher airflow for heat exchange between the radiator and the
ambient air when needed. In addition, the engine fan may be used as
a vehicle-retarding device.
EFC: Radiator Shutter Mode
EFC: Shutter Close Temperature
EFC: Shutter Open Temperature
ENGINE FAN CONTROL FOR RADIATOR SHUTTER
The purpose of Radiator Shutters Enable is to provide the proper
logic to open or close the radiator shutters (energize or de-energize a
solenoid). The purpose of this device is to keep the engine warm
during cold weather operation. This would enable faster warm-up of
the passenger cab thereby enabling faster defrost of the windshield.
Fuel economy can be improved when the radiator shutters are closed.
EFRC: Engine Family Extension
EFRC: Engine Family Rating Code
EFRC: Regulation Type
ENGINE FAMILY RATING CODE
This group of parameters allows the on-board electronics to precisely
control the fueling requirements based on the particular engine
configuration. The on-board electronics has what is known as the
Multiple Engine Rating Map. This allows a single on-board
electronic controller to provide different engine configurations.
Optimal control is provided for vehicles with various engine
configuration and ratings: engine model, rated engine speed, rated
engine power, and transmission type.

ELECTRONIC PRESSURE GOVERNOR
This group of parameters customizes the electronic pressure governor
feature. The purpose of the Electronic Pressure Governor is to
provide closed loop control over an external pressure input. This
feature is targeted for fluid delivery pumps, especially fire truck
applications. The EPG feature also provides a loss of pressure
detection. This is achieved by monitoring the hydraulic pressure, the
engine speed, and the status of the EPG select switch. Once the loss
of pressure is detected the EPG feature is disabled and a
corresponding fault flag is set.

ENGINE WARNING AND PROTECTION SYSTEM
This group of parameters customizes the engine warning and
protection feature. The Engine Warning and Protection System
safeguards the engine from undesirable operating conditions in order
to prevent engine damage and to prolong engine life. When a
warning condition is detected, the on-board electronics will light up
the OIL/WATER lamp and the warning buzzer is activated. When a
critical condition is detected, the on-board electronics will shut down
the engine if the engine warning and protection system has the
protection feature enabled. After an engine shut down, the operator
may re-start the engine for a thirty seconds run time if desired. The
event-logging feature will also record when an excessive (i.e.,
critical) engine event has occurred in both engine hours and odometer
readings. Currently there are four states of electronic operation:
STANDARD, 3-WAY WARNING, 3-WAY PROTECTION, and 2WAY WARNING.

IV.2.5

Exhaust Backpressure Control


This parameter customizes the exhaust backpressure feature. The
purpose of the exhaust backpressure device is to allow faster cab
heating and window defrosting. The on-board electronics commands
the exhaust backpressure device to elevate the exhaust backpressure
so that the engine load is increased thereby causing the engine to
work harder to expel the exhaust gas. This will cause the engine to
warm up faster.
Glow Plug Control
This parameter customizes the glow plug feature. Glow plugs are
used to improve/enhance cold-engine starting. The glow plugs are
energized prior to engine cranking to warm up the cylinders. The
glow plugs are turned full on if the battery voltage is normal, or
pulse-width-modulated if the battery voltage is above normal. The
glow plugs may continue to be energized during engine warm-up to
reduce emissions. The glow plug lamp is used as a wait-to-start
indicator. The glow plug lamp is lit during initial glow plug
activation to indicate to the driver to wait for the engine cylinders to
warm up prior to starting the engine.
IST: Idle Shutdown Time
IST: Idle Shutdown Timer Mode
IST: Max IAT for Idle Shutdown
IST: Min IAT for Idle Shutdown
ENGINE IDLE SHUTDOWN CONTROL
This group of parameters customizes the prolonged engine idle
automatic shutdown feature. The purpose of this feature is to shut the
engine down after a programmable idle time has been exceeded. This
allows the reduction of fuel usage, engine wear, and emissions.
Thirty (30.0) seconds before an automatic engine shutdown, the
operator will be warned via the red Oil/Water Lamp. This lamp will
begin flashing until the engine is shutdown. The operator may
override the electronics at any time. After an engine shutdown
occurs, the Oil/Water Lamp will stop flashing and a diagnostic code
will be recorded. The diagnostic code is recorded to assist in
diagnosing possible service complaints of the engine shutting down.
Currently there are four states of electronic operation: OFF, PTO
AVAILABLE, NO ENGINE LOAD, and TAMPER PROOF.

POWER TAKE OFF SPEED CONTROL
This group of parameters customizes the power take off speed control
feature. Power Take Off (PTO) Speed Control provides a method for
the operator to set and maintain a regulated engine speed, without
using the accelerator pedal, for the purpose of operating auxiliary
equipment. The power take off feature has an in-cab and a remote
operator interfaces. Depending on configuration, the operator may
turn on and activate PTO speed control while in the comfort of the
cab or at the convenience of the remote interface. If both in-cab and
remote operations are both enabled, the on-board electronics senses
which interface is active depending on operator actions. No active
mobile PTO operation is possible when the PTO speed control is
turned on using the remote interface. This feature also has the "bump
up" and "bump down" functions. Wherein, the operator may "bump
up" the RPM in 25 RPM increments when the Resume/Accel button
is momentarily pressed. The operator may "bump down" the RPM in
25 RPM decrements when the Set/Coast button is momentarily
pressed.
